If Kennedy Lived -- First Paragraph
I've just begun reading speculative fiction by Jeff Greenfield, If Kennedy Lived. The author developed his story based on what would be plausible given existing facts. It opens with this:
'It's raining, Mr. President.'
'I'm up,' he said to his valet, George Thomas, through the door of the master bedroom of Suite 850, and walked to the window. His hosts had borrowed priceless paintings from local museums--a Monet, a Picasso, a Van Gogh--but eyes were drawn to the gloomy weather, and to a large crowd gathered below: a fitting blend of bad and good news for this trip.

 Are you curious about speculative fiction?
